Next iPhone (iPhone 6s?) expected to feature an updated Touch ID sensor
Looking at Apple's past releases, we can probably safely assume that this year's new iPhones will represent incremental updates over the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. We can also assume that Apple won't announce any handsets before September, so there's still plenty of time for the company to work on the final variants of the upcoming iPhones. Even so, rumors and speculations have already started to show up.

According to Apple Insider, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that the next-gen iPhone(s) will have an enhanced Touch ID sensor that's going to improve the Apple Pay user experience (less reading errors are expected). With Apple Pay being accepted by more and more companies, it's obviously important for Touch ID to work flawlessly. Just like on the iPhone 5s and iPhone 6, the Touch ID sensor should still be included in the home button on this year's iPhones, despite the fact that Apple has been experimenting with Touch ID integration within a device's display.

Yesterday, we told you that the next iPhone is also supposed to feature an 8 MP rear camera, though one that's likely going to be better than the 8 MP cameras of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

Well, we're looking forward to seeing what other enhancements this year's iPhone will be packing.
